    Thank you for sharing your experiences Fleur. You have a big, kind, brave heart.

    So true what you just said too, sometimes things happen to us and we don't realise it is abuse - until someone else reveals it for what it is. Then the shock and denial and questioning all kicks in until we finally 'own' the fact for ourselves and we can begin to heal properly.

    ((( hugs )))

    Yes, I remember reading this on the silentlambs website.

    Remember these two words: SAFETY FIRST. Do what you have to do to get away safely.

    This is golden advice for those who are in a bad situation, whether it be abuse, or living with a vengeful person (ie family member, roommate). You are the most important person in your life. You need to take care of yourself.

    Thank you for posting this, Essie

    Hi, honey!

    Wonderful rebuttal poem! (The original story was already known to me.) It's nice to know that life has taken you far away from that awful time.

    Here's hoping you're feeling relatively well and always wishing we could someday meet.

    Love and hugs,

    Dearest Essie,

    Words fail me to express all the emotions brought to the surface by reading the events of your life. Thank you for sharing it with us and helping to remind me that we women can be strong - being the submissive we women we were taught to be - does not make us doormats nor milk toast. I remind myself of this in the first place.

    Wishing you infinate amounts of happiness...
